Well we were all geared up for our first tournament as a club for the Sandstorm and Akamia Tour Stop 1 on May 26th in Richland, WA…. Then the river flooded! We decided to make the best of it and hosted our very own Queen of the Beach, Mini Round robin Tournament. I have to say being a last minute adventure it was truly a success. We had 19 kids come out and spend about 3.5 hours in the late spring sun. 3 of them drove from Tri-Cites, 2 from Ellensburg, we had 2 boys and 3 U12s. It was awesomesauce!  Each player got to partner with each and every player for 5 minute rounds.  The points were totaled and after 20+ rounds we had a U12 Winner and U14 Winner who walked away with a prize package. We learned a lot about playing with many different types of players and also how important it is to wear sunscreen!!  We greatly enjoyed this and plan to host another round robin featuring partners toward the end of the summer. Be sure to follow our events on Facebook and check back for more Elite events!
